"[...] maybe a "Confirm address" option [...]"

In the UK a postcode on its own will be sufficient for confirmation in the vast majority of cases.

I was impressed by an online order today. After I typed the first line of my address - it instantly offered all the possible valid house addresses that matched in any town/city in the UK. Not sure what it does when the road name is very common eg High Street, Station Road, Church Street.
